Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?

• I’m from Mobile, Alabama and the thing I love about it the most is the legacy and the love and passion that is present there for football.

List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?

•  Strength and Conditioning, Film Study and Practice. You can’t play a sport if you aren’t strong and in shape so strength and conditioning should be your number one priority. Film Study is essential so you can see opponent tendencies and your tendencies so you know what you need to work on. Then lastly practice so you can get prepared for the big game.

What do you worry about, and why?

• There isn’t a whole lot I worry about. I just pray and let God work things out.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

• I tell Jokes.

Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?

• Anthony Rush

What would your career be if you couldn’t play football? 

• I’d probably write hilarious comic strips.

Room, desk and car – which do you clean first?

• Rooms, Desk, Car. 

If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?

• Family, my family is very important to me.

If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?

• Captain America, He is a super solider.

Tell me about your biggest adversity in life and how you’ve dealt with or overcome it?

•  Injuries, I dislocated my pinky one in spring ball and popped it back into place and kept practicing. I’ve jammed both of my thumbs before. This year I sprained my right ankle in training camp and later in the Gulf Coast Classic I got rolled up on and sprained the other ankle. It’s been frustrating but I’ve overcome these things by going to the training room and working on these areas. I also get stringers in my neck occasionally so it has been a grind.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

• It snowed here in Huntsville last year and I slipped and fell down in front of everyone,

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

• The most memorable play of my college career was that one time we played Alabama State and we ran power and I pulled and Jordan Bentley ran it all the way to the end zone for a touch down.

What song best describes your work ethic?

• DJ Khaled – Out Here Grindin

What is the most important trait you can have (Physical or Non-Physical) to help you succeed at the next level? 

• Non-Physical and I would say being poised. You can’t self destruct and go downhill. No matter what happens you always need to be pushing forward in a positive way.

If you could bring one person back from the dead for one day, who would it be and why?

• I’d bring back my Grand Father Mose Vidmer Parker. I have very fond memories of him. He use to take me to Old Dutch in Mobile, Alabama when I was younger to go enjoy Ice Cream.

If you were to open a dance club, what would you name it? 

• Jigging With Josh

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL? 

• DJ Fluker

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

• Respected. Anyone can be liked however, respect is earned. 

What player who had his career derailed by off-field issues do you feel for the most and why?

• Darius Philon, the accusations come off as shocking to me. When I first enrolled at Vigor High School he suggested that I try out for the football team and it was soon after that I noticed how talented he was. He showed me what the standard for football was there and what I had to do to become a college football player. I learned all of that from just watching him play.

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

• I hate to lose.

Who has been the biggest influence on your life and explain why?

• My Mother, she is the driving force behind everything I do on and off the field. Everything I do is for her.
